In the work of Swedish artist Fanny Hellgren the matter is at the center; its properties and agency and the imprint that human bodies make on it. A characteristic of her work is the poverty of her materials, using found objects, paper pulp from newsprint, and concrete as the ground for abstract or minimal gestures. Her way of incorporating elements and objects collected from her immediate surroundings and the urban sphere is a fundamental component in her artistic process, as is her reverence for the transformation of material. Hellgren lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art from Valand Academy, where she graduated in 2017 and she is currently studying for her master at the Malmö Art Academy (Konsthögskolan i Malmö). Her work has been exhibited in Sweden, Germany, Estonia, Serbia and Austria including at Nevven Gallery (Göteborg, 2017), Raum Vollreinigung (Berlin, 2017), Neustiftgasse (Vienna, 2016), Alingsås Art Museum (2015), Göteborgs Stadsmuseum (2015) and Raja Gallery (Tallinn, 2015).
